CohesiNet (“Cohesin and its regulators: from chromosome dynamics and nuclear architecture to human diseases”) is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action European Doctoral Network funded by the Horizon Europe Research and Innovation programme.

CohesiNet aims to train a team of 12 PhD students to use complementary experimental approaches to study the molecular and cellular functions of cohesin, the multi-protein complex responsible for shaping and maintaining the structure of chromosomes, and to unveil the molecular bases of the diseases due to cohesin malfunctioning (the so-called “cohesinopathies” and various cancer forms).

The CohesiNet PhD fellows will be exposed to an intense multi-sectoral and multi-disciplinary training programme that will enhance their career perspectives, while experiencing first-hand the value of Open Science and the importance of inclusion, transparency, accessibility and integrity in scientific research.
